More dunks, less turnovers. Also better hairline.

Better scorer (more efficient on higher volume)
Better rebounder
Better Assist to TO ratio
Overall much better defender
Much more athletic
Higher basketball IQ
Better leader (He can pump up the whole team and all the fans while V-Span just stays there, watching with his creepy eyes)

Simply a much better player

[QUOTE
29 current NBA players at the 2013 FIBA EuroBasket, and the vast majority of them either played like complete scrubs and/or just put up meaningless stats on terribly bad teams that got eliminated early.

And a whole bunch of them are just flat out complete absolute SCRUBS at that European level.
[/quote]


Generally, former NBA players in Europe are there because they can't make a team in the NBA. Don't even act like any of them were ever stars. They are third stringers who went to Europe as a last resort.

Sorry everyone, I misread the title, I thought he was referring to Euroleague again and I was kind of tired of the same old arguments he makes.

Could someone post their NBA stats side by side with the Eurobasket stats so we can see both sides of the argument?

Euroleague is garbage. The poster, not the league.

I warned Spanoulis to retire so he wouldn't continue to embarrass his family and his nation but no he didn't listen. Now he has the ignominy of not only being an NBA scrub, of not only being on the first NT ever to be eliminated by an African team in a playoffs but not lose to #48 ranked Finland.


Spanoulis has now earned a reputation as one of the biggest scrubs and chokers of all time.

After Greece got embarrassed by Finland, I didn't think Euroleague would show his face here for a few days.

But this fool shows up with a tl;dr post.

So basically their shooting and free throw percentages went down. How far off is it from their NBA percentages? Did you take into account that most of them are playing 30-35 mpg and taking a lot more shots than they did in the NBA, with the exception of Gortat, Batum, Calderon and Parker who played less? And, what does a lower free throw percentage have to do with anything at all? Could it be some of these veteran players are just out of sync from playing NBA ball for so long and just need to get a few more games under their belts to get comfortable? I would think going to a different team and playing by different rules would take some getting used to, even if you played with that team a few years ago. Do their Coaches give them the freedom to play the position like they do in the NBA? Or, are they utilized differently? I need some clear cut answers on this subject, because you seem pretty biased.

some NBA guys also use their national teams and euro teams to work on specific aspects of their games they don't get to highlight in the nba as well
